Pea naʻe folofola ʻa Sihova kia Mōsese, ʻo pehē, “Ke ke lea kia ʻElone, mo ke pehē kiate ia, ʻOka ke ka fokotuʻu ʻae ngaahi maama ʻe ulo atu ʻae ngaahi maama ʻe fitu mei he tuʻunga maama.” Pea naʻe fai pehē ʻe ʻElone; naʻa ne tutu ʻae ngaahi maama ʻi ai ke ulo atu mei he tuʻunga maama, ʻo hangē ko e fekau ʻa Sihova kia Mōsese. Pea naʻe ngaohi ʻae tuʻunga maama ʻaki ʻae koula kuo tuki, ʻo aʻu hifo ki hono kau, mo hono ngaahi fisi, ko e koula tuki ia: ʻo hangē ko e fakatātā ʻaia naʻe fakahā ʻe Sihova kia Mōsese, naʻe pehē ʻene ngaohi ʻae tuʻunga maama.
¶ Pea naʻe folofola ʻa Sihova kia Mōsese, ʻo pehē, “Mavahe ʻae kau Livai mei he fānau ʻa ʻIsileli, ʻo fakamaʻa ʻakinautolu. Pea ʻe pehē ni hoʻo fai kiate kinautolu, ke fakamaʻa ʻakinautolu: Ke ke luluku ʻakinautolu ʻaki ʻae vai fakamaʻa, ʻo tuku ʻakinautolu ke nau tele honau sino kotoa pē, ʻo fō honau ngaahi kofu, ke pehē ʻenau fakamaʻa ʻakinautolu. Pea tenau toki ʻave ʻae pulu mui fakataha mo e feilaulau meʻakai ʻoku kau ai, ʻio, ʻae mahoaʻa lelei kuo fefiofi mo e lolo, pea te ke ʻave ʻae pulu mui ʻe taha ko e feilaulau maʻae angahala. Pea te ke ʻomi ʻae kau Livai ki he matafale fehikitaki ʻoe kakai: pea te ke tānaki ʻae kakai kotoa pē ʻoe fānau ʻa ʻIsileli kenau fakataha: 10 Pea te ke ʻomi ʻae kau Livai ki he ʻao ʻo Sihova: pea ko e fānau ʻa ʻIsileli tenau hilifaki honau nima ki he kau Livai: 11 Pea ʻe ʻatu ʻe ʻElone ʻae kau Livai ki he ʻao ʻo Sihova ko e feilaulau ia ʻae fānau ʻa ʻIsileli, koeʻuhi kenau fai ki he ngāue ʻa Sihova. 12 Pea ʻe hilifaki ʻe he kau Livai honau nima ki he ʻulu ʻoe ongo pulu: pea te ke ʻatu ʻae taha ko e feilaulau maʻae angahala, pea ko e taha ko e feilaulau tutu, kia Sihova, ke fai ʻae fakalelei koeʻuhi ko e kau Livai. 13 “Pea te ke tuku ʻae kau Livai ʻi he ʻao ʻo ʻElone, mo e ʻao ʻo hono ngaahi foha, ʻo ʻatu ʻakinautolu ko e feilaulau kia Sihova. 14 ‌ʻE pehē haʻo vaheʻi ʻae kau Livai mei he fānau ʻa ʻIsileli: pea ko e kau Livai ʻe ʻoʻoku ʻakinautolu. 15 Pea hili ia, ʻe ʻalu ʻae kau Livai ke fai ʻae ngāue ʻoe fale fehikitaki ʻoe kakai: pea te ke fakamaʻa ʻakinautolu, ʻoatu ʻakinautolu ko e feilaulau. 16 He kuo tuku maʻaku ʻakinautolu mei he fānau ʻa ʻIsileli; ke fetongi ʻaki ʻakinautolu ʻoku fuofua tō mei he manāva, ʻio ke fetongi ʻaki ʻae ʻuluaki fānau ʻoe fānau ʻa ʻIsileli, ko ia kuo u ʻomi ai maʻaku ʻakinautolu. 17 He ko e ʻuluaki tama kotoa pē ʻoe fānau ʻa ʻIsileli ʻe ʻoʻoku ia, ʻae tangata mo e manu fakatouʻosi pe: ʻi he ʻaho ne u taaʻi ai ʻae ʻuluaki tama kotoa pē ʻi he fonua ko ʻIsipite, ne u fakatapui ʻakinautolu maʻaku. 18 Pea kuo u fili mai ʻae kau Livai ke fetongi ʻaki ʻae ʻuluaki tama kotoa pē ʻi he fānau ʻa ʻIsileli. 19 Pea kuo u foaki ʻae kau Livai mei he fānau ʻa ʻIsileli ko e foaki kia ʻElone mo hono ngaahi foha ke fai ʻae ngāue maʻae fānau ʻa ʻIsileli ʻi he fale fehikitaki ʻoe kakai, pea kenau fai ʻae fakalelei koeʻuhi ko e fānau ʻa ʻIsileli: koeʻuhi ke ʻoua naʻa hoko ha mahaki fakaʻauha ki he fānau ʻa ʻIsileli, ʻoka haʻu ʻo ofi ʻae fānau ʻa ʻIsileli ki he faletapu.” 20 Pea ko Mōsese mo ʻElone, mo e kakai kotoa pē ʻoe fānau ʻa ʻIsileli, naʻa nau fai ki he kau Livai ʻo fakatatau ki he fekau kotoa pē ʻa Sihova kia Mōsese koeʻuhi ko e kau Livai, naʻe fai pehē ʻae fānau ʻa ʻIsileli kiate kinautolu. 21 Pea naʻe fakamaʻa ʻae kau Livai, pea naʻa nau fō honau ngaahi kofu; pea naʻe ʻatu ʻe ʻElone ʻakinautolu ko e feilaulau ʻi he ʻao ʻo Sihova; pea naʻe fai ʻe ʻElone ʻae fakalelei maʻanautolu ke fakamaʻa ʻakinautolu. 22 Pea hili ia naʻe hū ʻae kau Livai ke fai ʻae ngāue ʻi he fale fehikitaki ʻoe kakai ʻi he ʻao ʻo ʻElone, mo e ʻao ʻo hono ngaahi foha: ʻo hangē ko e fekau ʻa Sihova kia Mōsese koeʻuhi ko e kau Livai, naʻa nau fai pehē kiate kinautolu.
23 ¶ “Pea naʻe folofola ʻa Sihova kia Mōsese, ʻo pehē, 24 Pea ko e meʻa ni ʻoku kau ki he kau Livai: tenau hū ke talifekau ʻi he ngāue ʻoe fale fehikitaki ʻoe kakai mei honau taʻu ʻe uofulu ma nima: 25 Pea ʻoka hoko ki he nimangofulu taʻu, tenau tuku ʻa ʻenau tauhi ʻae ngāue ʻi ai, pea ʻe ʻikai tenau toe fai: 26 Ka tenau fai fakataha mo honau kāinga ʻi he fale fehikitaki ʻoe kakai, ke fai ki he tauhi, ka ʻe ʻikai tenau fai ha ngāue lahi. Ke ke fai pehē ki he kau Livai ʻi honau tauhi.”
